“‘Is this yours?'” / Memorable Fancies #1834

[“ ‘Is This Yours’ is its name.” – W.S. Merwin]

There, on the side, in big letters: “IS THIS YOURS?”

I was about to take it; I thought, well, why shouldn’t I have it? Don’t I deserve something for all my troubles? I’m as good as anybody else!

But then as I picked it up I saw the writing on the other side: “IF IT’S YOURS, THEN SHAME ON YOU,” it read.

So I put it back, didn’t confess it was mine all along.
